Stop the Epipen Price Gouging

Messages Sent So Far
We ask that there be an investigation and regulation into the 420% (adjusted for inflation!) increase in the price of Epipens since 2004. Millions of people with severe allergies carry EpiPens to reverse life-threatening allergic reactions. With this oppressive price increase, many EMT's and families are turning to manual syringes as a cheaper alternative, though doctors and patient advocates warn that it?s more complicated to get the correct dose of epinephrine and it administer safely with a syringe. Some families will be forced to hang on to expired Epipens, or worse, go without entirely. There is no discernible reason for the increase other than Mylan's desire to use their monopoly to exploit the need for this life-saving medication for exorbitant profit. Thank you.

I just went to Walmart to buy my son's twin pack of EpiPen and it was almost $700 so this is still happening! I asked for the generic version because my BC/BS health insurance policy has a high prescription drug deductible. They re-wrote it and it was $313 (what it used to cost) - it the same box, same material so they are banking on people with insurance to send it through at brand name.

Stop all price gauging on pharmaceuticals. They should not be sold for more than 10 times what it costs to make them, or have extended periods as exclusive drugs due to minor changes if formula or use. Give Americans the same rights, as you give other countries, to buy in bulk, at reduced prices. Why should we shoulder the entire cost of research?

The epi pen belongs to the American people. It was voted in by Americans to be used and paid for with our tax dollars to administer. Keep it is America and keep it available and with a low cost. Stop ripping off the American tax payer! We have had enough!!

There's people that just can't afford this. Engineering I can see, but project should be no higher than 3%.
